The Pythons’ most critically acclaimed film is also their most controversial… and for good reason. LIFE OF BRIAN takes comedic aim at the story of Jesus by following the hapless Brian (Chapman) who exists in the shadow of the messiah and is repeatedly mistaken for Him.

“Life of Brian is an unexpectedly earnest, sweet-natured hymn to the idea of tolerance.”
– Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

“Still holds up beautifully, as both pointed satire and silly, stakes-free comedy.”
– Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
